Davis Center students donate to local organizations, Ukraine relief fund

Students on the leadership team selected Dayton-based nonprofits For Love of Children and Brigid’s Path, along with GlobalGiving’s Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund to each receive $4,000. 

“This gift was out of the blue, totally unexpected,” said Beth Mann, board president of For Love of Children, an organization serving more than 6,000 children who are neglected, abused or in need of community resources. “At a time where we are re-energizing and investing in our programming, they are replenishing that supply. You can’t imagine the smiles and feelings of self-worth these students are creating.”

By successfully navigating the market during the last 18 months, the students were able to double their previous charitable contributions, said Dan Kapusta, Davis Center director.

Former Davis Center leaders Bridget Momper ’22 and Jack Ward ’22 said the center's leadership team selected the organizations because their values aligned with the University’s Catholic, Marianist values and the values of the center.

“As a leader, you have a greater responsibility to not only be looking after your clients or your own analysts, but looking after the community as a whole,” Momper said. “We speak about the common good a lot at UD and we were given the opportunity to fulfill what is ingrained in us from day one on campus.”

The Davis Center is the largest student-managed investment portfolio in the nation with $67.8 million in assets, $3.6 million of which are through the Dayton Foundation.
